WAINAO N°6 - THE PROMISE OF A KID
WHY NOW? BECAUSE THE FIGHT AGAINST LARRY HOLMES WAS NOT LIKE THE OTHERS FOR MIKE, HE HAD DREAMED OF THIS ONE AND THE DAY HE COULD AVENGE HIS IDOL..MUHAMMAD ALI. We all had a lot of memories about IRON MIKE and knowing that the most important fight of MiKE TYSON's career for him, is not the one we could think of is stunning. He had so much respect for muhammad ALI that having able to keep the promise he made was more than special for him.
It says a lot about MR TYSON. This kid had been raised to be a champion and he fought for a lot of reasons and people but ....this fight was really for him. He wanted it ...Sorry LARRY HOLMES.
“ you won. you're world champion, but as you celebrate,… look around you, there’s always a kid in the back crying after his idol lost. …and believe it or not, he will make you pay one day “
" In the greatest fight of his life, he was NOT a boxer. Just a kid, finally strong enough To keep the promise he made years ago."
